Spectacular! Tunnel Hill Georgia Excavated C.S.A. Belt Buckle
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a one of the most amazingly beautiful belt buckles I have ever been able to offer. This is a gorgeous authentic excavated C.S.A. Belt Buckle. It is an original excavated Confederate States of America rectangular belt buckle. The front of the plate has the bold, proud letters "C.S.A.". This is the letter style variation that is often referred to by collectors as the Atlanta style. The name derives from the belief that these buckles were manufactured in Atlanta. This one is very similar in design to the one listed as Plate #092 in the book, "Confederate Belt Buckle & Plates" by Steve E. Mullinax. The buckle measures 48mm by 69mm in size. As you can see in the images, all three of the original, integrally cast brass belt hooks were removed from the buckle long ago. It has all three of the original attachment hooks intact on the back of the buckle. They are all in excellent condition. The edges of the buckle have evidence of hand filing. This was done by the maker to smooth the rough edges from casting. This hand filing is a trait that should be present in original buckles from the Civil War era and is one way to distinguish an original plate from a modern reproduction. The face on this plate is exquisite. The face of this Confederate belt buckle has a gorgeous untouched patina all over that gives it a beautiful look. This buckle is accompanied by the old brown envelope that it has been stored in for decades by D.R. Landon, the man who excavated the buckle. It states that it was recovered in September of 1969 in a Confederate Cavalry Camp of General Joe Wheeler. It was found in Tunnel Hill, Georgia. This is one of the camps occupied by the soldiers trying to keep General Sherman out of Atlanta. This is a fantastic piece with a cool history!
